The Earth is Not Dying

It’s being killed.

This is a quote from author and naturalist Paul Rosolie on the rain forest which is burning.

I came upon this photo in a travel magazine. It kindles dreams of visiting the rain forest someday. I’m not sure it will still be there when I get there. If it’s not there, it will be the least of my worries.

Green is the dream, you can’t get back from black.

Gray Green Twig Necklace

Occasionally, I will leaf through a bohemian chic catalog and see what the models are wearing. This necklace is inspired by a simple necklace I saw in¬†Anthropologie. I began a more complicated version,¬†consisting of individually woven leafy twigs built upon a woven chain.¬†Before I realized what I was doing, it was too late to turn back. 20″
